1 min read

Deputy governor to Engr. Seyi Makinde, Engr. Rauf Olaniyan, seeks justice by dragging the State House of Assembly to court over the impeachment move against him by the lawmakers.

According to The Punch news, the deputy governor was represented in court by his counsel, Chief Afolabi Fashanu, SAN, in the case which came up before Justice Ladiran Akintola at the Oyo State High Court, Ring Road, Ibadan, on Tuesday.

The judge ordered that the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Adebo Ogundoyin, and the Clerk of the House be put on notice before he adjourned the matter to Wednesday.

The lawmakers had, two weeks ago, initiated an impeachment move against Olaniyan.

The House in a letter read by the clerk, accused the deputy governor of financial recklessness, gross misconduct, and insubordination among other allegations following his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
